BENEFITING: Abuse Counseling and Education, Inc.
We hope to offer our Women's program for free next year at all three of our locations. The total cost for us to offer this program for free is only $200 per week, per location. Many women sent to our program are young, struggling single mothers who know nothing about how to create a healthy relationship. We help them learn self-empowerment. Based upon the most current research available, we offer services to help break patterns and habits of abusive relationships. We compassionately challenge denial belief systems that are the core of poor choices.
Recently a woman who completed wrote the following on her exit survey, “A whole year ago I started this program. I was a bad attitude, non-caring drug addict when I walked through that door and greeted Terry. A year later when I walked through the same door, I am now a 21-year-old woman, who cares about my life and my feelings and others. I am clean of drugs. I have healthy relationships, and boundaries. I own my own car, I have a full time job, and I have my own house, and I LOVE myself now. I would have never thought I could have made it this far in just one year. I am glad that I was court ordered to take this class when I did because it made me the strong woman that I am today, and I am so thankful for the tools this program has taught me. It really has been a miracle. IT WORKS, if you work it.”
